March 6, - I hope everyone can find their way in here OK.
I wish I had the clickable ready, but I don't. Please go right over there, and vote for it and join us there, if you liked it. Eddie Marie had posted a link to the first chapter in her post,I believe or of the Civil Discussion, and it certainly looks like a winner to me.
I love Grisham, do join us there. Now, how about THIS book? What do you think? Am glad to see we're taking it slowly. The first thing that jumped out at me about it was the author's ascribing motivations to the people in her books: Thought that was interesting, and made me feel like I knew them better.
Now off to think about those neat questions and get back later! Ginny LJ Klein March 6, - The introductory material with the well done word pictures was very fine It takes a Gogol or his likes to rate superior.
Wood stoves, Kerosene lamps, Inadequite water, nearest store miles away. Just like here during a bad winter storm or a flood or tornado. Gives me a feeling of "At Home" The Australian impression, probably a true reflection of world opinion, fits well with other things we've read.
Both parents had the old fashioned urge to get ahead and do the "Best", but even this is now an anachronism! That was a time when, if one kept one's nose to the grindstone, worked hard, applied oneself, was honest and truthful, and stuck to it, one then had a good chance of making it. In short, what we call "The American Dream" was still a reality.
I suspect that the death of this dream as well as the collapse of trust and confidence in our government are the major underlying causes of today's war in the streets and the rapid decay of our society.
Best Jo Meander March 6, - The family doesn't seem economically deprived, but the life on those rugged plains that they adjusted to lasted for years, not just seasons. Conway speaks of bush dwellers'stoicism, endurance and loneliness in a harsh environment. Nobody was encouraged to complain out loud or to entertain self-pity, however.
Were they all well rewarded for years of sacrifice? The one reward seems to be acquired toughness, if you didn't already have it! May be we need to ask somebody from Australia if the rugged quality exhibited by Jill's family can still be found on the plains, and if the moral fibre of the nation is well served by their work ethic.
What happens to the Dreams, American or otherwise? If we allow ourselves to be done out of them, is it really the government's fault? It's funny how they scorn the British in some ways yet "beside their crackling static-blurred radios, they waited for Big Ben to chime and then heard the impeccable British acceents of the BBC announcer reading the news," and on special occasions sang "Land of Hope and Glory" in honor of the Empire.
Fran Ollweiler March 6, - Once I got into it I was hooked. First I kept thinking of the mother deciding to go along with life in the bush because that was her husband's choice. But what a price to pay! I was completely ignorant about how tough life was there, and I was most interested in how the mother sought quite successfully to replicate the nicities of her life in Sidney with her gracious furnishings etc.
Throughout the book I kept thinking how easy my life has been in constrast. I don't know that I could have been that brave to face what she faced as a young woman.
Ann Alden March 7, - So, the work ethic and expected behavior of people was still there then. Jo Meander March 7, - I think if you keep reading the mother's strength will continue to impress you.Thievery and begging are common ways the McCourt's gain their food once the father leaves for England.
This leads to Francis feeling guilty for the ways he has to provide for his family. There is never a moment in the book where the McCourts feel as though they have enough food to last them a while.
